Nose Contouring

Nose Contouring

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” – Michelangelo

Let’s talk nose contouring.
AKA 1-minute nose job

This part is EXTRA.
YOUR NOSE IS JUST FINE THE WAY IT IS.
I contour mine, because in Oklahoma (where the wind comes sweeping down the plain), my allergies make me feel like Rudolf a lot of the time. That and I just think it looks more fancy a little sculpted.

Y’all. Product choice is HUGE here. Maskcara’s Shadow contour is a total game changer. It actually looks like a shadow, instead of making your nose look more tan or dirty like most products.

Lighting. It is nearly impossible to get a good nose contour without the proper lighting. That is, lighting coming from ONE source facing you. Go to a well lit window in your house and sit in front of it with a mirror (that is also the perfect place to take a selfie for color matching😉). If you are in side lit or overhead lighting, you won’t be able to see the natural shadows.

I drew two very fine (and curved at the brow) lines ON THE TOP of my bridge. Make sure your two drawn lines are INSIDE the two natural lines of your nose or else this whole thing could backfire. The closer the lines are together the thinner the nose will look. I applied a thin highlight line right down the center of the bridge, and also applied highlight to my nostrils and to the sides of the nose below my fine contour lines. Blend! I stipple (tap) with a brush to blend. You can play with the thinness here, it doesn’t have to be as thin as I’ve done, but it does help diminish the focus on your nose so your other features are able to shine brighter.

Comment or message me for questions about contouring different types of noses. These are the basics. I’ll try to figure out how to post a video on here. Any chance someone’s kid can help me?🤷🏻‍♀️

XOXO, Jessie

 

Dark circles…

Between mom life, nurse life, and makeup enthusiast/ Maskcara Artist & Leader life, there isn’t a whole lot of time for sleep. Or self care. Or drinking water. It’ll happen some day soon…

In the mean time, Mango under my eyes is my little secret for getting rid of my hard-earned dark circles. The peachy and yellow tones in the Mango and Sunlit highlights cancel out the blue and purple under my eyes. See color wheel.

The Eyes Have It

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately. I haven’t even scheduled any autoposts. Oops. I’ve been recovering after the Maskcara birthday party, loving on my family & working my real job.

Y’all are overdue for a tip!

Let’s talk about tight lining.  It makes your lashes look so much more full!
And if eyeliner isn’t your jam, you don’t have to worry about it being too thick or uneven or looking like a chevron pattern.

How to do it:

Take a black gel eyeliner and fill in your top water line. All the way. Don’t leave any gaps.

Line your lower water line with a light highlight or pencil and your eyes will look BIG, even if you’re a squinter like me.

Try not to jab yourself in the eyeball. Done. That’s it. So easy.
